Top 10 E's to Motivate and Influence an Audience

By Sandra Schrift

Speak with E's. Be a speaker of influence not control or

guilt. With the privilege of the platform comes the awesome

responsibility of motivating and influencing your audience

to feel/think/act differently.

1. Educate provide your audience with extensive information

on your topic. This will empower attendees to feel

competent and knowledgeable. Support your points with

stories. Stories help us see through the eyes of other

people. Adults delineate their thoughts visually.

2. Entertain give them the facts laced with a good dose of

humor. Adults learn better when they are lightening up!

Here's the place for some magic tricks, handwriting

analysis or a song.

3. Experience get the audience involved. When they

interact, they get it better and retain it longer. Group

exercises, simple questions and answers, role-plays.

4. Enthusiasm vary your tone of voice, smile often, and

show passion for your subject matter. Make your body

language reflect your comments.

5. Example be the speaker/person who motivates the

audience to admire and respect you. You have succeeded

when people say, I want to be like him/her.

6. Encourage be supportive to your audience believe in

them. Acknowledge them Say,"I did it and so can you."

7. Excellence hold yourself accountable for excellence.

And then help your audience be accountable and live up to

its potential. Speakers need to give audiences what they

need, not what they want.

8. Expertise demonstrate that you know your stuff. Speak

about what you know from your business background,

personal experiences and research. Be perceived as an

expert on your topic.

9. Eloquence deliver your speech with high energy,

sincerity, inspiration, and a sense of humor. Are you

one of a kind? What makes you different from your


10. End result you want to energize your audience to take

some risks, some action, go to the edge and execute

...make their dreams come true, or get the job done.

Your information should be useful and immediately

applicable to their lives.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
